Ha roo, pups and cool-cats! It's me, Zim! Ammy and I took Mom on a real cool adventure this past week and I'm here to tell you all about it!
At first, we walked through all the normal neighborhood stuff, then we headed up toward the Giant's castle! Mom had her earbuds stuck into her iPhone, so I'm not sure what she was listening to, but she kept saying things like "I didn't know that!" and "Cool!" so I think she had a Typical Mac User podcast going.
Anyway, there are a bunch of stores over by the Giant's castle now. I was hoping to see a Starbuck's or something exciting like that but there are only stores right now and no restaurants or cool coffee places. Mom said we could window shop...
Here's a good one!
...but we didn't buy any windows at all. Go figure.
Come on, Am, let's go.
We hiked up around the castle area to a cool pathway that leads to one of the golf courses here. Dad was playing there and I thought maybe we could see him. We went over this one hill (remember, we live in the Flint Hills and it's hilly here!) and Mom wanted to stop to admire the view. We let her turn around and snap this photo:
If you look closely in the center of the sky area, you can see the moon!
Then she started talking back to her iPhone even more, saying stuff like, "Where are you exactly?" and stuff - so I think the phone part must have rung and she was talking to someone. Then she said, "Look toward your left, up on the hill!" and she started waving. Ammy and I looked over and saw this:
See that silver SUV coming toward us? That's DAD! Hey, Dad! Ha roo, how cool!
We kept walking and saw this:
Doesn't that place look cool, in a scary kind of way? Mom didn't seem too keen on going through there, but Ammy and I sure wanted to explore it! We're Siberians! We fear nothing! Except maybe getting brushed... but that's another matter altogether!
For some reason, Mom made us go through it really, really fast and we weren't able to get into anything! Can you believe that!? Rats! (Sorry, not you, Roger!) Mom said something about it being dark in there and "who knows what you two will get into" and other stuff ... I wasn't really paying attention, as there were so many cool SMELLS! Besides, like I told my SiberMal pals, if Mom had downloaded that flashlight App to her iPhone, she would have been able to see in there just fine. It's not my fault she doesn't have built-in NVGs like we do.
As to what was on the other side...
We eventually wound our way back down the hill, then went back up the hill toward the house. Storm, Dave and Dad met us a few blocks from home - how did they know how to find us!?!? It was cool. Sorry Mom didn't get a picture of that; she should have!
It was a pretty cool adventure. Window shopping (even though we came home empty-pawed), seeing Dad, walking under the road, meeting up with Dad and Storm & Dave - what a full day! It was all we could do to have a round of zoomies then crash for a while. Thanks for letting me tell you about it; I wish you all could have been there!
